Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL. […]
Haggai 1:11a The post Haggai 1:11a appeared first on Daily Dose of Hebrew.
Jesus wants you to come to a personal realization of how much it is that He loves you. Even though we cannot quantify His love for us, we can always look to the cross!
Earlier this week, it was established in our message that in as much as Jesus wants to get personal and intimate with us, He definitely will not force His way into our hearts. Why? Because of Who He is, Love. and what He has said. His Word.
Now, let’s take a word from John Chapter 10.
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.” John 10:1-2
Jesus want to be your shepherd but will not scheme His way through cunning means…

Not to my surprise, topics that center on the existence of God or the resurrection of Jesus, brings up the issue of relevancy. In other words, in a somewhat post modern world, people aren’t always asking whether it is true. Instead, they are asking, “What difference does this issue make in my life?” I previously did a post called Does It Matter Whether God Exists? Even though I discuss these in this video here, here are a few reasons why I think such a topic such as the resurrection matters:
1.The Resurrection of Jesus provides evidence that the God of the Bible exists. Let’s look a the following syllogisms.
I1. f Jesus rose from the dead, the God of the Bible exists
2. Jesus rose from the dead
3.Therefore, the God of the Bible exists (not Zeus, Thor or the Flying Spaghetti Monster)
“In a debate with Gary Habermas, former atheist…

Part two of a conversation with Dr. Gene Green, professor of New Testament at Wheaton College, regarding the word hupotassō, often translated “submit” in 1 Peter and other NT books. He asks the question where and when should we “change the orders” rather than just to submit to them. Jonathan Blanchard, one of the founders of Wheaton College, was a respected abolitionist who looked at the “order” of society, challenged it, and ultimately helped to abolish slavery. Are there other orders in society that we should challenge and not just accept?

Objections to the Cosmic Temple Motif in Scripture
In Beale’s book The Temple and the Church’s Mission, both the garden of Eden and the Jerusalem temple are types of the Church, which is confusingly called the literal non-physical temple. Beale’s thesis, which is fed by many ingeniously interpreted though vague allusions – mainly reliant upon reinterpreting OT texts by privileged interpretations of the NT – is that the OT stories of Adam, Abraham, and Israel recapitulate the same story of failure to extend God’s spiritual kingdom throughout the world. Jesus, the final Adam, the final Israel, and the final temple (though apparently not the final Abraham), will set everything to rights when He comes, and then it’s a wrap as far as this present creation is concerned.
This is it in a nutshell. While its supporters readily admit that the cosmic temple has little…
